So i have a question when submitting do the cards have to be in the clear sleeves or can they be in any sleeve as long as it is in a semi-rigid holder? i ask cause i have quite a bit of pokemon sleeves that are sitting around doing nothing.

Hello

Here are the instructions we give for preparing your cards to send them to CGC.  

Shipping Your Trading Cards

 

Packaging Instructions

 

  1. For the protection of your cards, place each card into a protective sleeve.

  2. Then, place each card in a semi-rigid sleeve. The sleeve you choose must be sturdy enough to allow us to remove the card safely.

  3. Put all of your cards in between two cardboard pieces that are larger than the cards. When packaging your cards for shipment, please place the cards in the order in which they appear on the submission form packing slip.

  4. Secure the cardboard pieces with rubber bands. Ensure that the rubber bands are not too tight. They should be just tight enough to hold the cardboard pieces together and prevent the cards from falling out.

    Important: If packed too tightly, the cards inside may get damaged.

  5. Protect the bound cards with packing material such as bubble wrap, Styrofoam pellets or other shipping/packing material.

  6. Pack in a sturdy cardboard box, ensuring the bound cards are not packed too tightly. This may cause damage if mishandled. After placing your packing slip(s) in the box along with the cards, use packing tape to completely seal the outside of the box.

  7. If you are submitting cards under the WalkThrough grading tier, mark each side of your shipping box with WK in large, bold letters. If you are submitting cards under the Express grading tier, mark each side of your shipping box with EX in large, bold letters. If you are submitting cards under the Standard grading tier, mark each side of your shipping box with ST in large, bold letters. If you are submitting multiple grading tiers in the same shipping box, indicate the highest/fastest grading tier. Incorrectly marked packages will experience delays.
